just need 2 more lines!
springs:
dampers:

:) Well add another sub-section for fluids.
MCS 2 way adjustable with remote reservoirs spring rates are I guess custom. It's not a good advertising to say that you are running other company springs and shocks on your track car that's why they are not there. But if you look trough photos in this tread you will see that it's MCS 2 way ;).

back on post 420 TJ here claimed "Steeda Suspension at work". I don't think anyone is looking to crucify them for using 'branded' versions of Koni or MCS parts.

but on post Post 356 the pics show the MCS shocks :) I even asked after that. Hope this helps.

Yes we are running the MCS Dampers front and rear with our Steeda dual rate springs in the rear. Currently we are running a 300lb/in on the front.

Motion Control are the dampers we run on the 20 car. We run anywhere from 300lb/in to 650lb/in
In front. Rear we run a coil-over spring in the production control arm location for durability, rates range from 1000lb/in to 1600lb/in. Spring rate determination is track conditions, tire compound, tire sidewall stiffness, aerodynamic downforce, etc. On another note, currently our HPDE car runs our Steeda Pro-Action coil over adjustables on the front, with the adjustables in the rear with the coil over spring in the rear. We should have a advanced HPDE kit available this fall. Spring changes with the new kit will take under one hour on all four corners. The ride height is fully adjustable. The 20 car is fully instrumented with a data acquisition system. What we learn from racing and track events we put into our products. Our customers and enthusiasts are number one at Steeda!

Qualified 2nd on the grid. Led the 30 min race until the end and finished 2nd . Fuel surge tank failure ran out of fuel last lap. That’s racing! Proud to see a production Mustang right out of the showroom floor with mods you can afford, compete with purpose built GT4 Cayman Porsche costing four times as much!

The Aluminator is not exactly affordable nor showroom floor but sure. Also to be fair you needed 580 HP to compete with a GT4 Cayman that is making 425 HP. Ether way great result and I really admire your perseverance in racing a Mustang. Love the build.

In our configuration we are producing under 500 hp to the rear wheels. The Porsches definitely had more power coming off the corners and on the straightaways and banking. We made up the time in braking and cornering. The lap times were under a second per lap difference, it was a nail bitter. Video to follow.

@SteedaTech

Unless I missed it reading through, what was the final EPAS fix to the reliability concerns with the unit going to "manual mode" and also running the car after it completely failed?

This was noted in your posts 249, 251 and 256.

If you could post up a detailed synopsis of the issue, clarify how it was going to "manual mode" and the resulting fix that would be great.

Thanks!
